7 Most Anticipated Vehicles for 2021

Most Anticipated Vehicles for 2021: BMW i4
Are you ready to say goodbye to 2020? The pandemic, fires, high unemployment and an uncertain economic environment has caused automotive manufacturers to put a hold on many of their planned releases for 2021…but not all. This upcoming year, we are going to see new releases that will excite off-road pickup enthusiasts, bring new interest to aging high performance platforms, dazzle drivers with new levels of luxury and technology, and of course, introduce a slew of all electric vehicles.

Information on these new releases is sometimes sketchy. However, we have put together a list of the most anticipated vehicles for 2021 based on official data releases as well as PR reports. It’s not perfect but it’s close.

Most Anticipated Vehicles for 2021

2021 Ford Bronco

First on our list of the Most Anticipated Vehicles for 2021 is Ford Bronco. Ford resurrected the popular off-road model from the 70’s with an eye of kicking the Jeep Wrangler off the top of the off-road sales charts. A remarkable blend of retro and modern design packing serious off-road capabilities coupled with advanced technology and impressive engine choices make the Bronco a contender for best off-road ride on the market. Highlights include a super-low 94.75:1 crawler ratio, an advanced AWD system, electronic locking front and rear differentials and beadlock capable wheels. Powered by an inline turbocharged four cylinder generating 270 hp or a twin-turbo V6 that kicks out 310 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque, the Bronco is a “must see” for trail busting, rock crawling enthusiasts.

2021 Cadillac Escalade

Always a player in the luxury SUV class, the completely redesigned 2021 Cadillac Escalade is making a big impression on buyers of leather clad three row people movers. And we mean big. This ride is massive inside and out meaning there it has a ton of leg and head room inside and a dominating street appearance. But the real excitement lies in the technology and luxury convenience features built into this Caddy. Of course, there is one of the best hands free semi-autonomous driving systems, but that plays second fiddle to a 38-inch OLED touchscreen that displays the infotainment system and tech goodies like high-def night vision and augmented reality navigation. A 36 speaker AKG audio system, console cooler, voice enhancement (for communicating with the third row), automatic fold-flat seat system to maximize cargo space, and running boards that automatically retract when the doors are closed are just samples of what you can expect from this ride. Toss in a strong V8, a new multilink suspension, and four-wheel drive and you have a serious full size luxury SUV contender.

2021 Audi E-Tron GT

Targeted to compete with the Porsche Taycan, Audi’s luxury EV coupe e-tron GT provides the performance of the Porsche plus the ultra-luxury package that Audi is famous for. On the performance side, the e-tron GT can get to sixty mph in 3.5 seconds which is a tad slower than the Porsche, but it kicks the butt of its secondary competitor the Tesla S model. With a range of 250 and a charging rate that can get the batteries up to 80% in less than 20 minutes, the e-tron is going to give the luxury Tesla a run for its money.

2021 Nissan Proto Z

Remember when the Nissan 370 Z was the hottest ride on the street? That was 11 years ago and not much has changed…until now. The aging platform and badly outdated tech has been trashed and a new performance sports car, the Pro Z will be taking its place packed with the best tech Nissan has to offer. Under the hood will be either a 300 hp or 400 hp gas powerplant mated to a genuine manual transmission, a feature every performance enthusiast wants. The Z is back just when it looked like it was headed for the dustbin.

2021 BMW i4

With Audi, Mercedes-Benz and Porsche jumping into the EV race, BMW had to come up with something to remain relevant. The only EV, the i3 is a poor performer with a range of only 150 miles and a less than exciting design. The new 2021 14 is said to be as luxurious as anything Audi can make, has a range of 375 miles exceeding the class leading Tesla S and has reportedly, 80 more hp than the Tesla 3.

2021 Hummer EV

GM is reviving the Hummer as an electric “supertruck” with an emphasis on super, an easy addition to our list of the most anticipated vehicles for 2021. It is still big, but it is not inspired by the gas guzzling, military wannabe Hummer that was discontinued in 2011. This rendition is easily identified as a pickup and it is packed with luxury, high tech, and incredible off-road chops. Powered by a 24 module Ultium propulsion system capable of a 350 range and an incredible 0 to 60 time of 3.0 seconds, this Hummer has a lap of luxury interior and a full menu of off-road goodies bound to please enthusiasts. It starts with 35 inch tires, an adaptive air suspension that can provide an extra 7 inches of clearance, an 18 camera system to give you a view of every possible vehicle and terrain feature and a “crab mode” that allows the rear tires to turn enabling the ride to move diagonally. It is an awesome off-road ride.

2021 Tesla Roadster

Last on our list of the most anticipated vehicles for 2021 is the reigning King of EV vehicles, the Tesla Roadster. Tesla is launching a roadster that looks more like a Space X product than a car manufacturer’s work. This light frame two-seater is packed with all the tech that makes the other Tesla models so compelling, plus it has a propulsion system that has a range of 650 miles from a 200W battery. But the topper is the 0 to 60 speed which is a mind bending 1.9 seconds. Don’t blink, you’ll miss it.
